Head's Up David Lynch Fans!

I just learned today that filmmaker and visual artist David Lynch, director of surrealist classics such as Blue Velvet and Eraserhead, will be displaying his photography at an exhibit called Dark Night of the Soul during Miami's Art Basel week, which runs December 2nd through the 6th. It will be held at Our House West Of Wynwood (O.H.W.O.W.) gallery located at 3100 NW 7 Avenue Miami, Fl 33127.

The exhibit includes over 50 original photographs by David Lynch that will be accompanied by a soundtrack bearing the exhibit's same name. The music was written by Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse's Mark Linkous and features an eclectic mix of performers such as Iggy Pop, Suzanne Vega, the Flaming Lips, Frank Black - lead singer of the Pixies - and more.

Unfortunately, due to some kind of legal complication, the album is not available for purchase. But NPR has the entire soundtrack available online for free here. That link also provides more information on the making of the album.

P.S. - Here's a big treat for Lynch fans: O.H.W.O.W.'s Web site says that several of the photographs displayed at the exhibit will be available for purchase. For more information go here.

  1. Search a little on the web and you can download the album guilt free as Lynch and Danger Mouse encourage people to do so. It's really quite good, and interesting to hear Lynch himself croon on a couple of tracks
